Here goes nothing...

Here goes... this is my rough concept: A distant future where 3 major races in the universe have learnt to live in harmony. No pollution, no war, and no impending conflict. Yet. My sketch shows a sort of city square with a gigantic monument depicting the 3 races standing side by side. Haven't designed the monument yet, thus the big ugly box thing. It's gonna be a huge city square, so I'll have plenty of details to work out within the next 7 days. I'm giving myself a week for the designs. Be back soon...

^^ hello there

Great Start!
Looks like you have a great concept here. I'm looking forward to help you improve "tecknicly" your vision (note: My improvements are based upon my personal opinion and does not mean they are the best to go with)

My suggestion:
First of all I will suggest adding the 3 races, I mean 3 characters to represent the 3 races, add some sort of mother ship (top of image), and add bridges or tubes, among the buildings . Color the sketch lightly so I can defirenciate among objects. and due to the atmosphere, I would give the scene a night atmosphere ^^ lots of night ligts, and some stars in the sky,

Hope to see your more of your work

Old 10 October 2004   #8 But I'm considering redoing the concept... Updates in a day or two!

I've sort of decided on an overhaul from my previous design. I realised that I didn't really feel much for the previous concept. What I really wanted to do was something depressing, melancholic, and moody. So here's my new idea. I really want to create a living breathing world with lots of people that describe the qualities I just mentioned. Some things from the previous concept will still be used though, like one of the races and I'll still be implementing the suggestions given by ARSA, like lighting and the mothership.

It's still really rough, I want to finalise the composition and move on to all the details, which I'm actually doing now.

The last picture was actually supposed to be used for the monument in the first concept, but I thought I'll just post it anyway. I'll retain one of the two 'alien' races, either the mermaid or the wing creature. Right now i prefer the mermaid, as I can show her in the river.

Next update, a detailed colour test for the scene! To be done over the weekend.

Hello! I like the thought of 3 races in a living breathing world and the last concept looks promising with a big cityscape. My suggestion would be to try to get some characters closer to the camera view to bring out the emphasis on the 3 races.

Will follow your progress

Dang I hate colour tests...

Ok I know I promised a 'detailed colour sketch', but this is the best I could pull off in 2.5 days. There's still lots more detail to work out, but I think I'll start modelling now and design as I move along.

Those white squares are commercial signboards. Anybody want their names as shop signboards? I'm open to that idea.

C&C Appreciated!

Death to all signboards. All hail the mighty giant LCD screens. Maybe u can mix and match and see what works best. yeah maybe the signboards for the more "ghetto" areas and LCD screens for the city districts.

Looking forward to more updates!

Oh yes...LCDs...Or even holograms! Got to consider that, thanks, senior!
